    Hey, O-2, O-1 and O Day are fantastic. Perfect really.

    great that you didn't use much baking soda. People use all sorts of things for swaying so all I can do is just advise based on what I've seen as to what works well. If you're happy then I'm happy!

    O-2 means 2 days before ovulation. Positive OPK comes about 1-2 days before ovulation. Some people have regular cycles and so count the days based on what their cycles normally are insteaad of using OPK, so both terms are used as they mean slightly different things.

    Thanks! Well for me i see this swaying thing a bit difficult since i have a very irregular cycle. Last month i ovulated cd20 and this one pretty sure it was cd15. We dtd O-3 and O-1 and the day after. If i get pregnant this may sway more for girl right?

    That's why we use the OPK methods (so for a boy you'd have sex the night of positive OPK, again the next morning (O Day) and then again that following night (so twice on O Day) because many many people have irregular cycles.

    If you had sex on O-3, O-1, and O Day that would be good for blue! Why do you think it sways pinK?

    Sorry i meant the day after ovulation. So it was on o-3 and o-1, and o+1. I thought this would sway pink because that would be just One attempt in the fertile window right?.. Also, when you say positive OPK is it the first positive?. There was a month i got 4 positives, getting darker each time. So confusing

    O-3 still counts as an attempt. O-1 is a good attempt. And number of attempts is just one thing, so even if you did just get one viable attempt in, you're still able to get a boy.

    OPK are very imprecise. The norm is to ovulate an average 24-36 hours after the first positive OPK, tho you can ovulate anywhere from 8-48 hours after (and even as many as 72 hours) after your FIRST positive. Not the darkest!! That is a common error. And if you have a lot of hormone, it can take your body a long time to get rid of it and you can keep getting positives even after O. But at the same time it's also possible that your body surges (and it is detected by the OPK) and then decides just not to release the egg for a while. So then you surge again, or keep surging for a few days, and only ovulates after several positive OPK. We just can't know when ovulation happened based on OPK, they're just something that gets us into the ballpark (which is why when you read about timing on the Internet, they are all so full of beans...no one can use OPK to pinpoint ovulation with the precision they claim. And even temping is unreliable, getting the day of ovulation right only one out of three days. So it may not even be the case that you know what days your attempts were on in relation to O.

    Also, I just want to be sure yo know waht a positive OPK is? It's not just any line but only when the test line is as dark or darker than control.

    Yes! Last month like i said i had 4 ‘positives’. This month it was just one possitive and the next day it was negative. So i assumed i ovulated that day. I had PcOs a couple of years ago and for my first child (my beautiful 2yo girl) i took Metformin (wasnt really neccesary according to dr but we did it because i had a chemical preganancy that month) . This time i went to my obgyn and said everything was fine and i shouldnt worry about my irregular cycles. Im supposed to get my period in a few days. We’ll see.

    Oh I see, yes, PCOS can also cause many days of positive OPK.

    The good news is, it may help your blue sway to have PCOS tendencies. So you're not on Metfomrin this time?
